Welcome to my Teacher Page.
I am very excited to be teaching my fifth year at Smith Elementary. This is a great school and I look forward to teaching students PE every Wednesday and Friday.
Rules: With the chance for injury in PE, some rules are followed to keep safety a top priority
1. General Space: Students are expected to share space and move safely in the gym.
2. Respect: Students are expected to respect themselves, others, and the class equipment.
3. Always try your hardest and do your best.
Clothing: I ask that parents and students talk to plan for the best attire to wear for PE. Clothing such as t-shirts and shorts help keep students cool during activities. Coats and sweatshirts will be asked to be taken off as to not hinder students during participation.
Proper shoes are very important. Tennis shoes are the best for participation in PE. I have seen heels, cowboy boots, dance shoes, flip flops, etc. Those are nice for a casual day, but have the potential to injure students in class by tripping, twisting ankles, toes being stepped on, or slipping. I ask that you please help students remember to dress to succeed in class.
If a student can not participate in PE for any reason, please send a note or contact me directly to create a plan.
Thank you all for the constant support over the years, have a great year.

I am excited to be back at Smith elementary for my 6th teaching year. This week, students will be learning class expectations for PE, appropriate attire to wear, and what to do in the event of a fire, earthquake, and lock down. Students will also be getting assigned spots and learning warm ups and cool downs. Have a great day.
This week, students have been practicing the throwing events and hurdles in track and field. We used a foam ball to practice throwing and frisbees.
Have a great week.
Students this week will be practicing sprints, relays, and the high jump. Last week to start our track and field unit, students showed great ability to follow directions and push themselves to perform basic sprints correctly.
Please check in with your child to make sure they are wearing adequate running shoes as to avoid injury. Thank you for your time.
Thank you and have a great week.
